Starting December 10, 2014, Canadians can stay connected in Mexico with talk, text, and data at rates up to 95% below those charged by major wireless carriers. Coverage is nationwide and includes Puerto Vallarta and other popular vacation spots such as Cancùn, Playa del Carmen, Cabo San Lucas, Mexico City, and Tijuana.
“Mexico is a very popular travel destination among Canadian travellers, second only to the US, so making affordable talk, text, and data available in this region was a priority for us,” says Emir Aboulhosn, CEO of Roam Mobility. “We’re excited to offer coverage in time for the Christmas holidays and spring break—two of the busiest times of the year for travel to Mexico.”
Roam customers can choose from three 7-day plans:
- 50 talk minutes, 50 sent texts, and 50MB of data for $25
- 125 talk minutes, 125 sent texts, and 125MB of data for $50
- 200 talk minutes, 200 sent texts, and 200MB of data for $125
All plans offer data speeds up to 4G, unlimited incoming texts, calls to Mexico, the U.S., and Canada, and extra features such as caller ID, call waiting, MMS, and voicemail.
Roaming plans for Mexico can be accessed with the same rechargeable Roam Mobility SIM card used for access to Roam’s U.S. roaming network. For a limited time, Roam SIM cards are on sale for $9.95, or $14.95 for two.
“As we continue to expand our network for Canadian travellers, our SIM cards will continue to offer more value and convenience,” explains Aboulhosn. “Widening the network and continuing to reduce prices even further is our priority.”
New Enhanced Coverage
In addition to launching a Mexico-wide network, Roam Mobility is also introducing Enhanced Coverage for its U.S. roaming network.
Starting December 17, 2014, Roam customers can purchase an Enhanced Coverage add-on to supplement their regular plan and ensure coverage in areas the network does not currently cover so they can always stay connected.
The Enhanced Coverage add-on enables travellers passing through Alaska, Michigan, Maine, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa, Wyoming, Kansas, West Virginia, and Eastern Washington State to stay reliably connected to Roam’s network.
When scheduling a Talk+Text or Talk+Text+Data plan, Roam customers will have the option of adding the Enhanced Coverage add-on for just $1 per day for 20 minutes of talk, unlimited text, and 10MB of data per day to use in any of the Enhanced Coverage areas.
